Swedish ambassadors took a tour of the United States and their last stop was in Charlottesville.
The five ambassadors joined Mayor David Brown for a walk along the Downtown Mall today. They're participating in a study tour which focuses on child care, emergency preparedness, and education in the United States.
"The important thing is to meet people. You can have all the information you want through the Internet and through books, but you can not get the real truth about what's happening if you don't meet people," said Andres Hagman, one of the ambassadors.
They also visited New York City and Washington, DC.
